end of school...

June means the end of the school year, which our family eagerly anticipates.  We love summer!  We welcome the lazy days of not having to get up and out the door and relish the nights when the sun stays up later than we do.

John and Luke have already been out of school for a week.  The private school they go to is super committed to getting them out of school in early June.  While, most of our friends are either just finishing or still have a few more days.  However, they all got a spring break and we didn't, so it all evens out in the end.

I like to end the school year with something special, so we usually go out to lunch or out for ice cream or have ice cream and cake for dinner.  This year, the boys wanted to have lunch with their cousins (Joe and Will) who were also finished school for the year.

These are the bonds that I work hard to cultivate with my kids.  I want them to grow up knowing that family matters.  That you make time to spend with family and you choose family over friends.  I want them to look forward to seeing their cousins and to enjoy the time together.  These cousins live close so we are in danger of taking that for granted and need to be intentional about getting together with them.

After lunch Joe and Will came back to our house to hang out and play with the puppies.  Later that night the boys asked if we could have them over again to play.  So, now we have play with Joe and Will at our house on our summer fun list.

It's going to be a great summer!
